In the coming weeks you’ll find in-depth conversations with many of the artists and creatives we’ve been introduced to lately, but below you’ll find a sneak peak of some of the art and artists that we’ve been most excited about recently.

Desiderata GO PLACIDLY amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

As a choreographer I very rarely find the time to be vulnerable in a class setting. Taking class forces you to trust yourself and embrace the unfamiliar. I love being able to embrace my sensuality… I cherish the times where it's just me, the mirror, and the movement. @luxuryesthetics.artistry @the.real.esti.of.dallas #DanceForYourLife #dallasdance #dallaschoreographer #dallaschoreography #dallasmusic #dallasentertainment #dallasdancersnetwork #entertainer #dallasdancers #dancersatlanta #atlanta #atlantachoreographer #atlantachoreography #DanceForYourLife #FreedomInFreestyle #dallasdancers #dallaschoreographer #dance #TShirt&MyPanties @centrefordance @ellamai @pamcakes2210

I think what I miss most after moving is that “homey” feeling you have being around family and friends you’ve been able to grow up with your whole life. That’s not to say that I feel out of place or unwelcome in Austin now, because I feel the most in my element here than I ever have. Lorde has been my best friend since I have moved, her music feels like home and is just so comforting to me in every sense. What’s strange is singing lyrics now that I’ve been singing for years that I can truly understand and apply to my own life. For example, her lyric “the other day I forgot my old address” really struck me when I sang them, not because I necessarily forgot my old address but I now know what the concept is like. 🏡🍒 — I think it’s important to be transparent on social media, so that’s what this post is. This definitely has to be one of my favorite concept photoshoots I have ever done. I miss Stormy with my entire heart, life was so easy with you. But I know this next chapter for both of us is equally important as our adolescent was.
